Contain Podcast: Accursed Share
On #CurseNFT and the Accursed Share project, subcultures and value, building out smart-contract toolkits at the end of the world and the role of reenchantment in the solar economy.
“Bienvenidos al rito.”
Charlie Curran and I recently had this conversation on Barrett Avner’s Contain, a very special podcast built on good vibes and flow states. Here’s a preview:
In this episode, we discuss March’s NFT explosion as a matter of historical necessity and in relation to r/wallstreetbets and the general/libidinal economy. We wax apophatic about the taxonomy of curses, crypto as a new occult practice and its role as a paradigm-threatening subculture.
We also introduce Accursed Share, our Bataillean contribution to this psychodrama, through the genesis and implications of its inaugural project: the lifting of an actual, algorithmic curse via an artistic intervention that proves Clarke’s Third Law, “any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”
Remember Token & Taboo? We did it.
